I made a copy of the default  /admin/ControlPanel/ControlBar.ascx and installed it as another option in host settings control panel type.

My website requires only superusers to have access to the control panel, and did not want admins to even know it exists, so with my new copy I added the below code and selected it as my control panel in host settings.

<% if (UserController.Instance.GetCurrentUserInfo().IsSuperUser) {%>
<asp:Panel ID="ControlPanel" runat="server">

blah blah.......

<% } %>

Cool it works as planned, only the control panel shows up for the host and admins can still access admin modules on pages I added them to without seeing the control panel.

BUT now I'm left with a white space where the control panel should have been for administrators.

I have been fiddling around but with no success so I have come here for some help on how to remove the blank space where the control panel for administrators was removed from their view  by adding the code above to it.

thanks gerrit

Use your browser debugger and figure out which element occurs after the controlbar.  It will probably have it's position fixed with a value for the top set to about 55px.

You could use the same wrapper to inject an inline style so that non super users have a different value for the margin or top attribute on the offending element.  I think you will have to do this in your skin .ascx file.
